The Tear "Book 

of the 

BOSTON 
ARCHITECTURAL 

CLUB 



Containing 



EXAMPLES OF METAL WORK 




BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS 



1930 






THE BOSTON ARCHITECTURAL CLUB was organ- 
ized in 1889 for the purpose of associating those interested 
in the profession of architecture, with a view to mutual 
encouragement and help in studies. It owns a building in 
which all its educational and social activities take place. 

The classes of the Boston Architectural Club are only 
open to members. Others are admitted temporarily who 
make application for membership in the Club, pending 
action by the Board of Directors. A limited number of 
outsiders are admitted under special conditions to the 
Historv class. 



Outline of Studies 



Preliminary Design, Mathematics, Short Problems in 
Design, Preliminary Construction, Advanced Design, Cast 
Drawing, History, Drawing from Life and Advanced 
Construction.

FOREWORD 



IT is obvious that metal is entering with new importance into architectural 
design. The contribution of bronze is particularly notable. The faculty of this 
aristocratic material to enhance the nobility of building has always been under- 
stood. At the hands of the modern designer, however, it is revealing unexpected 
versatility. One is impressed by the nervous grace and delicacy with which it is 
made to assist the swift lines of the new architecture and by the felicity with which 
it articulates the reticent surfaces. Joined with its capacity for the gracious ren- 
dering of ambitious sculptural form, it is difficult to put a limit on its availability 
as an architectural resource. Were it possible to develop for it a permanent patine 
in its relation to the statuary of outdoors, this superbly capable metal would be 
relieved of its single disability. The genius of iron is more limited but its traditions 
are rich and venerable. Hand-wrought iron is capable of a naive charm which will 
probably always appeal over the impersonality of bronze to the romantic designer. 
A wealth of beautiful precedent in this field has come down to us from the patient 
and primitive processes of the mediaeval smithy and from the Renaissance craftsman 
of Spain, Italy and England. 

The dullness of lead seems uninspiring, and Shakespeare employs it symbolically 
in the Merchant of Venice as the humblest of metals. And yet its decorative possi- 
bilities are exemplified by many charming details of the architecture of the English 
Tudors. Its encroachment of late in the field occupied by copper in our building is 
to be noted, as is the favor which copper itself is finding in fresh directions. The new 
resources which have come to the designer by the addition of aluminum, chromium 
and monel are making for larger and more varied exploitation of metal and in 
associations which had never engaged it before. 

The tendency of the modern sophisticated methods, however, to eliminate the 
historic figure of the craftsman is not to be ignored in the consideration of this 
subject. William Morris and Burne-Jones and the Arts and Crafts Societies fought 
valiantly for the tradition, but the pressure of mass production through the enlarged 
resources of the machine is now felt to be more or less inexorable. It is a dictum of 
the new artistic philosophy, moreover, that the genius of the individual material 
need no longer influence its design or its technique. Against the validity of this idea 
sufficiently eloquent matter may be found in these pages in the contrast between 
the gates of the Palais de Justice and those of St. John's College, Cambridge. Style 
and material are not separable. Besides, the exigencies of a strenuous age may 
tolerate certain compromises of principle, but there is reverent place always in the 
world for those things which are sincerely and intelligently wrought by hand.

Quiet ! 

Amid the Roar 



PEOPLE SLEEP WELL in 
this New York hotel, the luxuri- 
ous Sherry-Netherlands. One of 
the greatest of its luxuries is quiet. 
Its partitions are sound-proofed 
with Cabot's Quilt, the time- 
tested insulation against noise, 
cold and heat which is installed 
in so many of the newest, most 
perfectly constructed hotels, 
apartments, private houses and 
office buildings in New York and 
other cities. 

Noise is nerve-wracking, 
wherever it exists. Even in the 
country, the hooting of motor 
horns, the scream of brakes on a 
hill or a curve, the shriek of a 
locomotive whistle or steam siren, 
may very quickly make you nerv- 
ous and ill unless you direct the 
builder to shut out such noises 
with Cabot's Quilt. 

NEARLY FORTY YEARS 
AGO, Samuel Cabot of Boston 
stood on a North Atlantic beach 
and saw a limitless supply of 
Zostera Marina, an ocean plant. 
He found that our forefathers, 
two hundred years before, had 
packed the walls of their houses 
with it to keep out the cold. 

After subjecting this plant to 
laboratory tests, Mr. Cabot found 
it perfectly adapted to all house- 
insulating needs. He invented 
methods of preparing the plant 
and designed and built machinery 
for quilting it between long rolls 
of best Grade A Kraft. 

CABOT'S QUILT 

Recent tests by the U. S. Bu- 
reau of Standards prove Cabot's 
Quilt the most efficient insulator 
in common use — far more effi- 
cient, because it is soft, elastic 
and fluffy, than any rigid wall- 
board can be. It discourages fire, 
too, for it is composed mainly of 
unburnable silica, instead of car- 
bon (as in land plants). 

INCH QUILT 

New stitching machinery en- 
ables us to offer Cabot's Quilt in 
this new thickness, for maximum 
results, or special service work in 
either heat insulation or sound 
deadening. Installation is cheaper 
and quicker. 




of New York 



SUCCESS is a fickle jade! For 
years after the discovery of creo- 
sote's value in shingle and wood 
stains, Samuel Cabot worked to 
develop a process to reduce pig- 
ments to a fineness impossible by 
grinding. This was made possible 
by the exclusive process of "collo- 
paking," which carries the pig- 
ments deeply into the wood. They 
act like dyes. 

CABOT'S COLLOPAKES 

During the past year, the sales 
of Cabot's Collopakes have 
doubled and redoubled. We have 
used no forced-draught selling 
methods. The painting trade, 
together with architects and 
builders, has suddenly waked up 
to the fact that Cabot's Collo- 
pakes are different from and more 
efficient than ordinary stains or 
paints. 

LISTS ARE DULL things. 
But here, in the most compact 
form, are the seven main items 
in the Collopake group: 

Cabot's Gloss Collopakes. Gloss 
Colors which have greater covering power 
than ordinary paint and which retain 
their gloss outdoors. Made in all colors, 
but particularly famous in permanent 
greens, for doors, shutters, and trim. 

Cabot's Semi-flat Waterproof 
Collopakes. Semi -flat colors, for use on 
exterior wood, stucco, brick and stone. 
Waterproof and lasting. Preserve the 
texture of the material. 

Cabot's Old Virginia White. A semi- 
flat Collopake universally accepted as 
standard for exterior finish; gives the 
"whitewash" white effect. 

Cabot's Double-White. A semi-flat 
white of tremendous covering power, 
whiter than white lead and more durable. 
Used the country over. 

Cabot's Interior Flat Waterproof 
Collopakes. New washable flat colors for 
interior decoration of plaster, woodwork 
and metal. Have unexcelled priming, 
spreading and covering power, and dry 
flat showing no brush marks. 

Cabot's Creosote Shingle and Wood 
Stains. "The Stains with a National 
Reputation." In successful use since 1882. 
Colloidal penetrating pigments suspended 
in Creosote Oils which usually double the 
life of shingles or other exterior woodwork. 

Cabot's Interior Stains. Colloidal 
pigments made by the Cabot Collopaking 
process with a lighter oil base for interior 
work only. All of the beauty and lasting 
quality of Cabot's Creosote Stains.

EVEN Sarah Bernhardt, who threatened to sue a 
hotel because an uninviting bathroom spoiled 
her day and her evening performance, would have 
been charmed by the beauty of this typical Crane 
room. Even the most frugal will be delighted by the 
economy with which this beauty is here offered to 
American home builders. The Corwith bath with 
overhead shower, the Norwich lavatory, the Santon 
closet, all new fixtures full of character, cost no more 
than clumsy ones. The fixtures can be had in any one 



of a dozen delicate hues, with only a fraction added 
to the complete cost of a bathroom. The decorations 
. . . linoleum for the floor, canvased wainscot, papered 
walls . . . actually can be carried out for less than it 
would cost to build a stereotyped room. For a book 
giving the floor plans, color schemes, and full infor- 
mation concerning twelve such beautiful rooms, write 
for Bathrooms for Out-of-the-Ordinary Homes. Among 
them you may find some ideas which will be of real 
worth to your clients.

for a Small Home*. 



For larger homes there has been no problem. H. B. 
Smith Boilers have proved outstandingly satisfactory 
under the special and severe conditions set up by the 
Oil Burner. 

But for "medium-to-small" homes there has been a 
problem because no small Smith sectional boiler existed. 

To correct this situation the New Smith "16" was 
developed — a small sectional boiler with all the effi- 
ciency features of the larger Smith sectionals.

/ "T~ V HAT is the outstanding feature of Sturtevant Unit 
Heater-\ entilators . . . pleasing in appearance and 
highly efficient in operation. 

Fresh, out-of-doors air is drawn into the unit, filtered 
clean, tempered to the desired degree, and evenly dis- 
tributed without draft. The temperature is controlled 
either manually or automatically, by simple damper 
devices. 

Their quiet operation makes them ideally suited for 
offices, class-rooms, churches, or hospitals where con- 
trolled temperatures and fresh air are essential.

facts about Sturtevant Unit Heater-Ventilators. May

FRINK ILLUMINATION 




Modern Architecture, an art en- 
tirely original, has an able ally in 
modern Lighting. The same great 
gulf of changed circumstance and 
principle separates these two from 
all that has gone before. 

Though its heritage is not so grand 
and it has no cultured peaks of the 
past from which to borrow — this 
new illumination truly accents 
today's ideal of dynamic simplic- 
ity. With the aid of artist and 
engineer is being built its own 
rich tradition of close coupled 
artistry and utility. 

For 70 years the Frink Corpora- 
tion has accumulated the ex- 
perience reflected by its many 
unusual, beautiful and practical 
installations throughout the 
country.

This remarkable window is 
the first of a splendid group 
that will ultimately adorn a 
beautiful new church of Tudor 
Gothic design. It is what to the 
lay mind is known as stained 
glass, but in reality it is more 
than that. It is a masterpiece 
in color. It represents a revival 
of an art practised by the 
ancient masters of a Christian 
faith, in the revival of which 
material progress has been 
made in recent years. Examples 
of the modern revival are rare 
in this vicinity, and the great 
windows to be placed in St. 
Theresa's are most beautiful 
specimens of the present day 
achievement in the realms of 
art.

Your clients want and 
expect these added features 




Of course your clients expect to have elec- 
tric refrigeration in their homes. And you'll 
find that the majority prefer Frigidaire, for 
they want the extra service that Frigidaire 
alone provides. 

They want the Frigidaire Hydrator . . . the 
special compartment in which moist cold air 
keeps celery, lettuce and other vegetables 
fresh . . . makes even wilted vegetables 
crisp again. 

They want the famous "Cold Control" . . . 
the simple device that speeds the freezing of 
ice and makes possible scores of frozen 
delicacies requiring extreme cold. 



They want the practical beauty of cabinets 
in Porcelain-on-steel . . . Tu-Tone color 
outside and sparkling white within . . . 
spotlessly clean and easy to keep clean. 

And you, too, will prefer Frigidaire . . . 
because of the ease with which it fits in your 
plans. You can have it "built in" as a part 
of a kitchen cabinet or cupboard ... or 
installed as an individual unit. 

May we send you full details about the com- 
plete line of Frigidaire equipment for every
